*"* A lirri S"VLI I Compare our real
laAMta \JVm computer games to
Commodore VIC 20 computer games on cartridge are just like real arcade games— not imitations. Judge
the resolution, graphics, sound effects and play action tor yourself. The difference between a real
computer game and just a video game is easy to see. Here are a few reasons why VIC 20 computer
games are best:
• SCREEN POSITION: When the display tirst appears on the screen, you can adjust the horizontal
position of the picture by pressing the CRSR control key. This unique feature allows for variances
between different television sets.
• KEYBOARD/JOYSTICK: Most VIC computer games work both from the keyboard and with a joystick.
Most standard joysticks plug directly into the VIC 20 game port connection. (A few of our more
sophisticated games/simulations use the keyboard — only as a "control console.")
• SILENT DEMONSTRATION: If you don't play a game within several seconds after turning it on, the
game gives you a silent demonstration of itself to show you how the game is played! Also, the opening
display on most games shows you which keys or joystick positions affect which actions.
• HIGH SCORE CHALLENGE: Another unique feature is the "HIGH SCORE" line which shows you the
highest total so tar. The VIC 2C "remembers" the highest score recorded , . . just like an arcade game . . .
until you turn the VIC off. A few games (like RAT RACE) have preset high score s which give you targets to
1. Turn on your television set.
2. Turn your VIC 20 off (you will greatly increase the "life" of your game cartridges if you turn the VIC
off before Inserting or changing cartridges).
3. Insert the game cartridge.
4. Turn the VIC 20 on.
5. Adjust the picture on your screen by typing the CRSR key.
6. Type the appropriate START KEY. VIC games may be started by pressing one of the following
keys: fl, P or RETURN. Here are some sample start keys:
TITLE START KEY
VIC AVENGER P
JUPITER LANDER II
ROAD RACE !1
SUPER ALIEN fl
DRAW POKER RETURN
7. Play the game using either the joystick or keyboard controls explained on the reverse side of this
8. Turn the computer off before inserting another cartridge.
